A Theological Examination of Symbolism in Ezekiel with Emphasis on the Shepherd Metaphor

by Joel K. T. Biwul

Ezekiel holds true to the prophetic tradition in his use of symbolic sign-acts, particularly the shepherd metaphor found in chapter 34. Addressing the subject of failed leadership in secular and sacred domains, the author points to Ezekiel’s use of symbolism and the shepherd motif to show what society stands to lose under bad leadership and governance.
